FARGO, ND – Red, white and blue meet green and yellow on November 9, 2019, during the North Dakota State University (NDSU) Bison football game at Gate City Bank Field in the Fargodome.
In response to a recent request published in The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead by local military veteran advocate Alana Christenson, Gate City Bank has gifted NDSU Bison football gameday tickets to 48 veterans in honor of their brave service to our country, and in recognition of Veterans Day on Monday, November 11. Sixteen veterans will be hosted in the Gate City Bank suite.
Additionally, three lucky military families (11 people total) will be the game’s honorary Gate City Bank Ultimate Fans. These honorees will be recognized on the field during one of the game breaks.
“Today and every day, the team at Gate City Bank honors veterans as part of our commitment to creating a better way of life. They are our grandparents, parents, brothers and sisters, significant others and children. They deserve our attention and praise for all they do to serve this great country,” said Steve Swiontek, Chair of the Board at Gate City Bank.
Throughout the month of November, Gate City Bank is proud to support all veterans and active service members by offering no documentation fees on all personal loans, a savings of $110. ATVs, autos, boats, ice houses and RVs are all included in this limited-time promotion.
“Gate City Bank is proud to make a difference for servicemembers, veterans and their families. We accomplish this through engagement, gratitude and recognition,” said Kevin Hanson, President & CEO.
The bank offers military team members full pay, benefits and vacation accrual while they serve on active duty. Recognizing that the transition back to work and family life takes time, the bank also provides two weeks of paid time off for team members upon their return from active duty.
“We want to send a positive message to those who serve, and express our gratitude for their service. It is a sacrifice that needs to be recognized, acknowledged and supported. It also sends a positive message to team members in the military: They don’t have to worry about their job, pay and benefits. We have an obligation, a duty to support our active servicemembers and veterans,” Swiontek said.
